Jesus. Our example. Our model of the Christian walk. Jesus, in the Old Testament, displaying the faithful disciple.
The Lord God has given Me the tongue of disciples,
— “All your sons will be taught of the Lord;“
Isaiah 54:13a NASB
We are taught through the word of God and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the perfect example of a disciple. He is the Lord and He teaches us to be disciples.
That I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word.
— For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good. Psalms 107:9 NASB
— “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.” Matthew 5:6 NASB
— “but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” John 4:14 NASB
Jesus draws the heart to Himself. God is at work preparing hearts for Himself. Jesus sustains the weary one with His word.
Are you seeing the weary ones, the hungry souls, the thirsty ones around you? Ask God to open your eyes to those who are seeking and then as a disciple lean on the Holy Spirit’s guidance to lead them to the well of water.
Do you want to be like Jesus? Do you want to walk in His footsteps? Then you need to prepare.
Isaiah 50:4c He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple.
In the morning, O Lord , You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch. Psalms 5:3 NASB
Give God your best. Your freshest time of the day to devote to Him in preparation to be the disciple Jesus demonstrated.
Eagerly watch for God’s work in the lives of the lost calling them to salvation. Eagerly watch for brothers and sisters who are in need of repentance, to become thirsty and hungry for righteousness once again.
Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul. Psalms 143:8 NASB
